I just want to Apologize to Pastor Jim Garfield & to his Wife Vicki. And to The Higher Ground Ministeries Church in Swartz Creek, Mich. When I helped my Sister Cindy do The Obituary for my Mom. It slipped my mind to put Higher Ground Church that My Mom was a Member of for many years when My Mom & Dad & Matt lived in Davison. My Mom loved Pastor Jim & Sister Vicki & Higher Ground Ministeries Church. Infact, when my Dad passed away they were all Members here. So, I personally want to Apologize to Pastor Jim & Sister Vicki & to Their Church that I forgot to Add their Names & their Church for Mom being a Church Member with them & Attending Their Church.
